The Rowell's - 30+ Years!

I will start by saying I was so honored to shoot this amazing couple for this session. When Betty booked me for the shoot, she told me that in over 30+ years of marriage to her high school love, they have NEVER had portraits done of themselves together. I felt a tremendous amount of honor flow through me as she chose me to capture these special images. 

We meet at a local park and planned for just a quick mini shoot as they didn't want anything too much. "Just a few pictures we can give to our children & family" she said. And even though it was going to be just a quick session, I had all intentions of capturing the most amazing shots they would treasure for 30+ more years! That didn't take much effort on my part I must say. I saw right away exactly what made them perfect for each other. The laughter & love these 2 shared was so inspirational. You could feel the love they have for each other all around and it poured into their images the same way. 

So 30 years, 2 children, and 5 grandsons later...

Shabby Chic Bride-to-Be!

I was happy for Jodie & Alex's BIG day to finally get here! I could hardly wait to finally get to post the images we took back in April for Jodie's bridal session. Her wedding theme was Country Shabby Chic and it truly lived up to the name. We arrived to her venue at Wildberry Farm, which is a simply breathtaking place! With the help of her sweet Mama to assist us, we were able to capture this beautiful bride's pre-wedding images. And what a stunning Bride-to-Be she was!

We started in the Bridal Cottage for a few indoor shots. 


We even included her sweet pooch for a portrait shot!

We then moved along to the reception hall which for a few more indoor!

Jodie wore her Grandmother's vintage broach on her bouquet!

We finished up along the outside of the reception hall, and with the help of the grounds keeper were able to move this amazing chair (which I would LOVE to own!) for the finishing shots! The bottom left image is to honor Jodie's Grandmother <3

Stay tuned as the wedding images will follow once they are ready!
